Melbourne Lung and Sleep Specialist

Lung and Sleep Physician

I have always been fascinated by our respiratory system, the way it efficiently and effortlessly performs a vital function that we often take for granted – breathing. As a doctor, I have seen how devastating it can be when this system fails. It is a desire to help alleviate the anxiety and distress caused by breathlessness that drove me to specialise in the field of pulmonary medicine.

My training began as a community pharmacist, providing education on the use of inhaler medications on a daily basis. After graduating from the University of Queensland School of Medicine with a Dean’s Commendation for High Achievement, I completed the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in Respiratory and Sleep Medicine in 2018. I went on to complete a Sleep Medicine Fellowship through Monash Health in 2019 and continue to hold a public appointment there, remaining active in clinical research.

My great love, other than family and medicine, is mountain biking. When I am not out on the trails locally or in beautiful country Victoria, you can usually find me tinkering on the bike in the garage.
